It's possible that Billy and Mary could
still be related...but if it continues to be this bad then I don't think anybody will be around to find out. I'm glad that DC could give us another teenaged character who is angry at the world. Lord knows that is a refreshing story!
Once again I will say that I don't see why they couldn't just modernize Billy a bit but still leave him with that overwhelming sense of wonder and optimism. Sure, life dealt him a bad hand but that doesn't mean that tomorrow won't be better. Why would the Wizard give these amazing abilities to a kid who is just like every other kid out there who thinks the world owes them something? Wouldn't he be more likely to give those abilities to somebody who has had as rough of a life as Billy but still faces each new day with a smile and is excited about the endless possibilities before them?
No...no you're right DC, let's turn the wielder of the powers of Shazam into a brat who makes a little girl cry by shoving the cold reality of her world into her face when he has just met her.
